The first response is fairly simple: Did you suffer an injury?
Injuries from auto accidents can be tricky, because you may not feel the pain until a couple of days after the accident. Injuries may also seem minor at first but then linger and then get progressively worse. While some injuries are fairly obvious, other injuries may seem minor or linger, but these are injuries. If you feel pain after an accident, it is a good idea to see a doctor. A doctor can evaluate you and help you make the right medical decisions.
Next, should you consult with an attorney? The first response is, why not? You were in an accident, you are injured, maybe never been through this before—why not get answers from someone who knows? You took the time to see your doctor (medical professional) to get answers, and you paid him/her for the advice. So, take the time to see an experienced personal injury lawyer (legal professional) to get answers. The best part—the lawyer, for an initial consultation is free.
Understand that insurance companies do not have your best interest in mind. In fact, just the opposite. Insurance company goals: Settle quickly and/or settle cheap and/or don’t settle at all.
In dealing with the insurance companies, do you know what to say? Do you what not to say? Be careful, because too much of either can really hurt your case.
An experienced personal injury lawyer will know the answers and be able to guide you, to the best possible result for you and your case. Attorneys often prefer that a case is settled without having to go to court, but attorneys also offer the weapon of getting to court if that is what is truly needed. This is a great weapon to have, especially if insurance companies are undervaluing your claim.
